Tether Attacked, $30 Million Dollars Worth Of Tokens Taken
Yesterday Tether released an announcement letting us know that $30,950,010 USDT was removed from their Tether treasury wallet through malicious action by an external attacker (aka, they got hacked).
It looks like only 1 Tether private key was compromised so Tether is still as safe/not-safe to use at it was prior to this announcement.

Russian Minister: We Will ‘Never’ Consider Bitcoin Legal
The head of Russia’s Ministry of Communications (Minkomsvyaz) has said the country will “never” legalize Bitcoin within its economy.

My Current Sentiment: Neutral.
